The new 2020 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS can't hide from our spy photographers.
After unveiling the Taycan, Porsche is finally ready to focus on its signature product, and expand the new 992-generation 911 family. At the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche will finally lift the wraps off the all-new 911 Turbo after the new 911 Carrera debuted at the 2018 LA Auto Show. We're also still waiting for the new hardcore Porsche 911 GT3.
Slotting between the Carrera S and the 911 GT3 is the 911 GTS just to make the 911 range even more convoluted, which will also be joining the 992-generation family. This isn't surprising because the 911 GTS is a popular option for drivers who want something spicer than a Carrera but less intimidating than the hardcore GT3.
While we've already seen prototypes of the new Porsche 992 GTS Coupe and GTS Convertible being tested, this is our first look at the upcoming 2020 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS, which has a retro-inspired folding roof.
The Porsche 911 GTS Targa prototype was caught cold-weather testing in Northern Sweden. And just like the coupe and convertible version, the 911 GTS Targa is completely uncamouflaged. After all, we already know what the 992-generation Porsche 911 looks like, so why would Porsche bother to disguise it? The 911 GTS is easy to spot thanks to its distinctive center-mounted wheels. The front bumper has also been tweaked slightly and the exterior features black trim.
At the back, the Targa 4 GTS has been fitted with a Sport Design bumper and sport exhaust system, and the tail lights are clear instead of red.
The previous 911 GTS produced 450 horsepower from a 3.0 liter twin-turbo, so the new 992-generation GTS should increase the output to around 475 horsepower since the 2020 911 Carrera S already delivers 443 hp. Power will be fed through either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic. Since the new 911 Targa 4 GTS has been spied completely undisguised, we're expecting it to make its official debut within the next few months.
